Artemisinine-based combinationtherapies and Malaria transmissionin the field 37. ACTs and malaria transmission A single intramuscular injection of 5 mg/kg artemisinin (togametocytemic rhesus monkeys) resulted in complete loss ofmosquito infectivity within 24 h of drug administration DuttaGP, et al. 1989 artemisinin derivatives reduced gametocyte carriage 18.5 foldand were found to reduce the transmission potential offalciparum malaria Price RN et al.,1996 Artemesinin-based combination therapies (ACT) forfalciparum malaria reduce gametocyte carriage, and thereforereduce transmission.37 38. ACTs and malaria transmission (2) NASBA study in Kenya data suggest that the potential ofmalaria transmission remains high even after treatmentwith artemisinin combination therapy Schneider P. et al,IJP, 2006 An efficacious antimalarial regimen with no specificgametocytocidal properties but a long prophylactic timewas estimated to be more effective at reducingtransmission than a short-acting ACT in the highest-transmission setting.

Discussion Overall, infectivity was about three-times higher fordirect feeding than for membrane feeding (p < 0.001)Diallo M., et al Malaria Journal 2008 MFA Blood cells were separated from plasma bycentrifugation and plasma was replaced by a similarvolume of normal human plasma known to sustain malariatransmission. This step was performed to avoid thepossible interference (blocking or enhancing) antibodies togametocytes in the donors plasma.53 54. Conclusions Malaria eradication/elimination will requirenew, safe and truely gametocytocidal drug Need more sensitive gametocyte assays thatcould indicate gametocyte viability inaddition to prevalence and density. Field oriented studies need to be as close aspossible to natural conditions. Too muchcleaning of experimental design may yieldnice results but with little relevance to reallife. 54 55.
